The Living Deads

When: Fri., March 29 2013

Fla.-based rockabilly

The Living Deads have kidnapped a rockabilly guitarist from Akron, Ohio, and forced him into servitude. The two-piece band has been picking up guitarists on the road since their original guitarist quit the band the night before a tour several years ago, and it makes for an unpredictable live show. Upright bassist Symphony Tidwell and drummer Randee McKnight once picked up 43 guitarists in a single tour. When they come to North Charleston, they’ll have Shane Vain, lead singer of the Midnight Railers, laying down the hot licks on rough-cut, infectiously danceable songs like “Living Dead Boogie” and “Shit Men Say to Symphony.” “We keep our burlap sack and baseball bat onstage in case our kidnappee tries to make a run for it,” Tidwell says. —Paul Bowers FRIDAy
